Effect this measure will have on costs and revenues of state government.
|Adding one (1) position to the Division of Personnel will equate to increases to salary and benefits expenditures as well as expenses associated with that employee. Total fiscal impact would be $80,500.00. Of that, $64,000.00 would be for salary employer match expenses and $16,500.00 to be for current expenses for supplies, equipment, and other miscellaneous employee expenses.|

3. Explanation of above estimates (including long-range effect):
The bill would result in an increase of one (1) FTE within the Division. This position, were it a classified position, would likely be equivalent to a Personnel Specialist Senior which is a pay grade 14. The pay range for this position is $29,400 - $54,396. We, therefore, used the pay range for that position in making estimates of the costs of the new position.
Based upon the salaries of other employees with similar complexities of duty within the Division of Personnel, in the Personnel Specialist Senior classification, the estimated salary is approximately $50,000.00.
We use 28% as the estimate of other expenses associated with salary including Social Security and Medicare Matching, Employer Portion of Retirement, and Employer costs of health insurance. In this instance those costs would add $14,000.00 in current expenses. We would generally expect to expend 33% of employee base pay ($16,500.00) on other current expenses on an annual basis. Because the position will reside in the Division of personnel the Director recommends that the Division cover all current expenses for supplies and equipment and provide clerical and administrative support to the position, absorbing those costs from the Division’s current budget.
| The bill offers one area of vagueness: It is not clear from the legislation if the funding for this position will come from general revenue or if the costs will be absorbed by the Division of Personnel from current special revenue funding.
There are no technical defects.
